I’m so distressed that in one month of this new administration more government spending has been proposed than the combination of World War II, both Iraq wars, and the offensive in Afghanistan (millions of it going to protect the Marsh Mouse in San Francisco or billions to dishonest ACORN offices). Look forward to a reduction of the home mortgage deduction plus charitable donations are also falling out of favor and will lose part of their taxable deduction. This is a titanic shift in priorities and direction of our government – CHANGE that is crushingly bad for the future.
There were problems with the previous administration and I wish they had done a few things differently but it doesn’t call for the wholesale abandonment of key principles of democracy, free enterprise, and entrepreneurship. We needed to edit some of those mistakes not gut the ideals that made us great. It is democracy and capitalism that made this country great. Ours was the first democracy on this earth since the ancient Greeks and God’s hand helped establish the freedoms and strengths we enjoy today.
It is the role of government to create a safe environment where individual freedoms are enjoyed and business can flourish with an equal opportunity for all to participate in the American dream. It is an equal opportunity not an equal outcome that is promised. This stupid administration wants an equal outcome and that can’t be done at this time in this current world.
This blinded and demigod administration with the cooperation of the media is trying to rip out the very heart of what is good about this country. They feel justified to turn us into a socialist state because of isolated greed of a few powerful individuals. Punish those individuals, throw them in jail, make them pay for the destruction they have introduced….but don’t overturn our effective society’s values. It is pure madness and is helped along by an ignorant population that wants government handouts instead of earning their own bread or sees those that are successful as the villains. Hitler used the same mentality in his inciting the German populace to slaughter the Jews.
There is a full out attack on the entrepreneurs, small business owners and individuals willing to take risks to build this country. They want the 40% of the population that doesn’t even pay taxes to grow even larger and do it on the backs of the top 5% who pay 50% of the current taxes. We are doomed as a country if this continues. We will become
If you owe a large sum of money, you can’t get out of that debt by borrowing three times that money. We can’t borrow our way out of this problem. Move back to “Mark-to-Value” accounting (instead of “Mark-to-Market) as it was before 2007 when the Democratic congress changed the rules and killed the banks. Lower Capital Gains taxes, lower corporate tax rates, incent small business (not punish), set up insurance of loans not tax payer give aways. These ideas will stimulate the economy without leaving a crushing tax burden upon our children. Nothing to say of the inflation that will decimate this country in about two years.
The Obama administration has some good ideas and I would be a fool to ignore them. I think alternative energy investment is good along with tapping our own oil resources (which they have stopped), repairing our infrastructure is important, and safeguarding our environmental future is critical. It is their overwhelmingly tone and direction that is terrifying – building a government where half of the people live off of efforts of the other half and it is an expectation that government will take care of you.
I’m ashamed that this has happened to you my children and grandchildren. It is my hope and prayer that this prevailing liberal mentality passes quickly and we returned to our senses without too much damage. We value God fearing morals, equal opportunities and a land where hard work is rewarded and not punished. More government is not the answer.
Pray and fast for this great country today – I am.
